Every year, I need to process certain code before April 8 and after January1.  How can I do that using the code below?

SelectMonth = Format(currentServerTime, "mmmm")
            SelectDay = Format(currentServerTime, "dd")
            
            
            If (SelectMonth < "April" And SelectMonth < 9) And (SelectMonth < "January" And SelectMonth > 1) Then
            'add code here
            End If

If you want to do it before April 8 (in other words not "on or before" April 8) then change the "09" to "08".

This isn't working

esql = "select GetDate()"
                rec.Open (esql), conn, adOpenStatic, adLockReadOnly
                currentServerTime = rec.Fields(0)
                rec.Close
                    
            SelectMonth = Format(currentServerTime, "mmmm")
            SelectDay = Format(currentServerTime, "dd")
            
            
            If (SelectMonth < "April" And SelectDay < "09") And (SelectMonth > "January" And SelectDay > "01") Then
            Combo1.AddItem "January,February,March"
            End If

This doesn't seem to work either

If currentServerTime < "04/09/14" And currentServerTime > "01/01/14" Then
            Combo1.AddItem "January,February,March"
            End If

What am I doing wrong?
